The 1st Hackers Conference was organized by Stewart Brand, Whole Earth and the Point Foundation in Gerbode Valley, California, in 1984. This historic gathering brought together for the first time several generations of hardware and software designers, who collectively changed the world we live in. Hackers, Wizards of the Electronic Age was produced by Fabrice Florin in 1985, to give tribute to these unsung heroes - from the first MIT hackers to popular Silicon Valley inventors - through interviews with 12 computer pioneers, including Steve Wozniak, designer of the Apple II; Bill Atkinson and Andy Hertzfeld, designers of the Macintosh; Homebrew Computer Club leader Lee Felsenstein; MIT hackers Richard Stallman and Richard Greenblatt; and others.
